Yeah there are definitely exceptions to every rule. 2 of my fraternity brothers immediately come to mind as examples of guys who made out well with a bachelor's degree; both are making well over $100k. In fact one of them broke the $100k mark 5 years after graduating from college. 

But those are just 2 random guys.

The majority of bachelor's degree holders are not clocking 6-figures within 5 years of graduation. 

Similarly, you may find some attorneys in the public sector or in solo practice or in small firms who are making in excess of $100k 5 years (or even 10 years) after graduation but they will be the exception to the rule, not the rule.

ETA: one exception that comes to mind, federal prosecutors.  The Assistant US Attorneys in NY and NJ do start between $110k to $130k depending on experience.
